    It's roughly 15 by 8 feet and we still need to seperate their living space from out storage space and then build all their nesting boxes and roosts. So so far so good and they will be nice and toasty warm during the winter with all that isolation! Let me know what you think or have any input with the development![​IMG]

    OMG! That is WAY too nice for poultry! hahaha....my real house kinda looks like that. Wow, lucky chicks!

    I have ducks and found this free LITTLE TIKES playhouse. I think ducks don't like shelter so I am glad it was free. My website shows my set up. Sweet hubby is building a new one now. Some crafty PVC connections that will connect to the TIKES house. Should be nice if he ever gets back to it!

    Quote:The whole thing is about 120 sq ft but not sure how much the chickens would have quite yet most likely half so 60 sq ft
